We are considering 50/50 custody with a full week at a time. The question is what day to switch? Monday or Friday have been tossed out as ideas. I can't find much from anyone on the pros or cons they saw on a Monday switch. Input is requested from folks who are or have switched on Friday or Monday. What is working for others who are on a week by week custody. Is there another day you like and why? Children are tweens right now.

Switching on Sunday evening is common. It works well for school in particular.

There are several people I have talked with who switch Sunday afternoon typically at a time between 4 and 6 PM. The parent who gets the child does the driving.

Of course you can set it to whatever works for you. For some people things can run late at work, etc. and that can increase stress. The downside of Sunday is that you can't easily do day trip or anything that day.
